Check that the CPU is seated correctly. Unplug the power cored first, remove the cooling fans (very carefully), remove and reinstall the CPU (even if it looks fine), then reassemble the PC and try again.

Make sure everything in side your computer is in all of the way. Push down on all of the cards and the memory to make sure nothing came loose. Make sure all of the cables are securely fastened and give it another go to see if it powers up.

Hello,
Did you plug your AC adapter in and then try to turn it on? It may be that your battery ran out of power. Try to plug your AC adapter into your laptop, wait about 2 minutes for the battery to charge, then turn on your laptop. If that doesn't work, you may need to replace your battery. The battery on that laptop is fairly cheap, ranging in price from $10 used to $60 new. If that doesn't work, your power button may need to be fixed. You then need to have it fixed by a reputable computer repair store.

Hope that helps. Good luck!

Computer was on, screensaver is from my photo file - it was running. I moved the mouse to get back to the screen I had previously been on, walked away for a minute, came back, the screen was black. ...


Windows 8 especially and sometime Windows 10 may have a black screen during an update for over 15 minutes with no indication that anything is happening.

Try complete power down by holding the power key for 10 full seconds. Consider unplugging power for a few seconds after that as well.

Re-connect power, press power button to turn on the computer then if the screen goes blank, give it a half hour before looking for another solution... it may come back to you.

When I pressed the button on the tower to turn it on, nothing happens. What could be wrong?


im assuming the pc is plugged in and if there is a switch in the back of the computer by the plug it is set to on.

assuming the above is correct try moving your computer to another wall outlet. also leave the computer unplugged for about 10 minutes and try again.

T.V. Clicking for 10 minutes before it turns on


Scart leads or scart adapter would never cause such problems. The problem will be in the TV itself. You need to check the power-supply unit at the main-boar. First look for visible cracks at the other side of the board, then you might need to check all the low voltage capacitors at the power unit. In most cases 100 Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} µFx16V located just next to IC causes such a problem. Only one TV out of 430 had actually defective IC itself, and TV was stil working after 6.26mins. So in your case I'd check low voltage part of the power unit.

Hi again,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me" and the repeat use of FixYa.

Interesting concern, should be pretty straightforward. Anyways, pls try to:
  • update/re-install the driver from Microsoft Download page;
  • alternately, disable the "Allow the computer to turn off..." in the Power Management tab of the USB Root Hub Properties in your Device Manager.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you again for using FixYa.

Try unplugging the printer from the computer, then turn off the printer with the Power button, next unplug the power cord from the printer for 5 minutes or longer, now plug the power cable back in and turn on printer without connecting to the computer. If the lights have stopped flashing, reconnect to the computer (if using USB) or power off first if using a parallel cable.

Add comment if still having trouble. Hope this helps.

Cannot startup


Try removing the RTC battery (real time clock) and hopefully (for you) this is what is also keeping the CMOS memory. So, take theat out, wait about 15 minutes, put it back in, reboot and tell us your resutls.
